Russell Simmons and Kimora Lee split up
Russell, Kimora Lee Simmons Split

Rap mogul Russell Simmons and his wife Kimora Lee Simmons are splitting, a rep for Kimora confirms to PEOPLE. An announcement is expected later today.

A spokesperson for Russell had no comment.

Russell, 48, and Kimora, 30, married in 1998 and have two daughters: Ming Lee Simmons, 6, and Aoki Lee Simmons, 3. Both girls model for Baby Phat Clothing, Kimora's offshoot of her husband's Phat Farm clothing line.

The former Kimora Lee, whose father is African-American and mother is Japanese-American, was a model, for Chanel and others, when she began dating Simmons, a cofounder of Def Jam Records.

The pair met in November 1992 during New York City's Fashion Week. She was 17 and about to finish high school; he was 35 and a self-admitted ladies man.

"I was skeptical," model Tyra Banks told PEOPLE in 2002 of her initial reaction to the relationship. But, she said: "She turned the man about town into a loving husband and papa."

The couple were married by Simmons's brother, Pentecostal minister and rapper Joey "Reverend Run" Simmons of Run DMC, on the Caribbean island of St. Bart's on Dec. 20, 1998. --->

My girlfriend said she saw this coming because she watched some kind of special on vh1 about her and she is very arogant and talks to russell like he is a child. Like if it wasn't for her phat would not do so well and she is an ***.

She has the worst neck in Hollywood, second only to Britney Spears. You can tell her age by the amount of rings in it!

Do you think this will be the end of Baby Phat?

I was thinking (hoping, really) the same thing.
